Zero Trust Supply Chains and the Risk of Gray Market Chips
February 9, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 9:40 am PST
The recent shortage of chip supply and long lead times prompted system makers to turn to second tier suppliers and distributors for fulfilling their semiconductor needs. This in turn has put a spotlight on the growing concern of fraudulent or counterfeited Integrated Circuits (ICs).
This webinar will discuss challenges and new approaches to supply chain security and counterfeit detection.
Key questions to be discussed:
- What are the motivations behind IC counterfeiting
- Risks that counterfeit ICs expose
- How to detect security risks in your supply chain
- How to assure supply chain integrity while deploying multi-source strategies
- Emerging approaches for device authentication, validation, and supply chain integrity
The webinar will include a Q&A session.
